The Thang:

AO: BombSquad

Conditions: 42 and chilly, but not too bad

Well I told myself that I would do my best to start reaching out to kotters around the region that have been on my mind recently, as its always great to get some #HIM that we all know back into the gloom. Lucky for me, on a lunch run the other day, one such kotter actually happened to stop me. High Interest offered some words of encouragement on my slow run in the cold rain, so I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to EH him and get him back in the fold. He told me that he would do it, just to tell him what day I would pick him up. Well Sunday evening came around and I got the 52 notifications from Cross Stitch reminding me that I was on Q for Monday, so I reached out to HI to see if he was in. It took him a couple of hours of being on the fence, but he sucked it up and said he was in, so I told him that I would get him at 0500.

Rolled up to his house right as he was locking the door and we headed to the AO. We saw some familiar cars and PAX running, so it was looking like it was going to be a decent turnout. But then the PAX kept coming… 9… 14… 16 PAX! (Sadly no Coathanger, as he HC’d the day before, but was a Monday morning casualty).

1 minute warning

Disclaimer – Lets get this show on the road


  • 5 Burpees OYO, But then I see Jeter rolling in with the Flag (17 PAX!) so I change it to AMRAP burpees until he gets the flag set up.
  • As Jeter took his time and the burpees and comments flowing, Quaker decided that he had enough burpees and took over planting the flag
  • Now that the flag is set up and everybody is in the circle… 5 Burpees OYO so Jeter can get some

Moleskin: Great to get High Interest back out in the gloom. Lot of guys were happy to see him out. Great push by everybody as it was an easy plan, but it pushed everybody.
